ATC's for Swaps on Swap-bot

I finished five ATC's (artist trading cards) for two swaps on Swap-bot Saturday.

The first is "Flutter By" and has a musical score background with butterfly's. The next is "Take Time". This one is a picture of a man looking into the engine of a car that I got in another swap... I just cut out the man. The next is "Springtime" Just flower stickers and a rinestone flower with a postage stamp with a bird. The fourth is "Bouncing Baby". It is a page from a music book but is in a foreign language with a picture of the baby from an old shower invitation and says "follow the bouncing baby". The last is for another swap and is a page from an old dictionary that has "Swap" defined. I added a rub-on heart and wrote I and -bot after swap. I have a couple more ATC's for a Springtime swap I need to work on this week and will post as soon as I complete.

Hoppy Easter!

We had a great day yesterday! Most the family was able to attend. It started out a little chilly but warmed up enough to sit outside and enjoy the day. The kids had a great time. Here are a few pictures.
Meme, Heather & Mickey starting in on the Easter Lunch.

It's Beginning to look a lot like Baseball Season!

To start off with - I pulled my camera out of it's holder and accidentally took my own picture. Isn't it lovely?

Opening Day at the Ballpark in Arlington!

What else needs to be said? Marla, Heather, Susie & I braved the cold and the wind for a wonderful day at the ballpark! (Poor Billy is in Houston on business) We had "All you can eat" seats! We got all the grilled chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, popcorn & cokes we could consume...and boy did we consume!

First - they turned loose the balloons!

Then they unfurled the GIANT American flag held by Soldiers that had recently returned home from Iraq.

Next, they announced "Our Texas Rangers!" - sporting their retro red uniforms!

This pic was taken right before we left. I told Heather she looked like a Japanese Kawaii monkey!

Another year is well on it's way and another Opening Day is celebrated with a spectacular win by our Texas Rangers!

Ain't life grand!

Scrapbooking Post

Well! I finally have gotten around to post pictures of the layouts I did at the last crop...way back in March! These are a few more of the pages for MeMe's Heritage Album.

This is MeMe and Nanny Helen (MeMe's mom). It's so rare we get snow around here, they must have been so excited they needed a picture!

This is Granpa Bill and Nanny Helen

This is the whole family! I'm going to add a journal block in that big blank space on the right.

This is the "Fashionista" page! You can't see too good but the hair do in the bottom right picture is priceless!

These pictures were taken at the beauty shop MeMe always went to when we lived in Pleasant Grove. She went to there religiously! Every Saturday!

This is a great pic of MeMe smiling! She doesn't usually smile when we are taking pictures because she doesn't like the way her wrinkles look! But, It's great when she smiles!

I have about 6 or 8 layouts to complete and I will be done with her book! I hope to finish all of them on the next crop in May! I wish all of you could be there!

Gotta go for now...heading to the Volenteer Fire Departments Fish Fry at the fire station. This is always better than the chili supper...I don't care what Rex Eugene says!

Finally! I'm posting!

I got my camera back from Heather and I've really been a slacker. I told my friend Marla I would post pic's of the Dotee's I've received so far in my ABC Dotee swap. Here are B - C & D.

I don't have A yet. The gal who started the ABC Dotee swap flaked out and I ended up taking it on. She was my partner in the A swap. I do have a private swap going on with another swapper who didn't get the D. She is making me an A and I am making her a D. I got another swap and my partner for that swap sent me a "Bonus" Dotee! Here she is.

I'm getting a root canal this afternoon! Yippee! So...I don't know if I'll feel like posting or not. If I do, I'll post the pictures of the layouts I made at the last crop. The pages for my mom's heritage album.
Type at 'cha later! Kim
